The Companion To Christian Art

$350.00

Christianity has been a central force in the shaping of western culture. It is not surprising, therefore, that the greatest artists down the centuries have sought to paint its story. This book tells the history of Christian art, exploring the purpose behind the masterpieces and looking at the context in which they were created. The modern secular reader who feels detached from the meaning of the paintings will be helped to understand their emotional as well as their asethetic power. And the Christian reader will be encouraged to explore further the wonder and beauty of the Christian cultural legacy. The book includes a final chapter on the way modern artists are continuing and changing the legacy.

    The Archaeology of the Bible

    $170.00

    Does this have anything to do with the Bible, the book that has profoundly influenced Western culture? Is there archaeological evidence that bears on the Bible? Are the narratives of the Bible, especially those from 3,000 and more years ago, myth or history? Is a scientific discipline like archaeology even compatible with an obviously religious book like the Bible? These are relevant questions that this book will seek to answer.’
